"On Becoming Childwise is one of the few books available today for clear and effective parenting. As a parent and child neurologist, and often as a counselor, I daily use the information in this book. I heartily recommend it."
"As a pediatrician, the healthy growth of children is the central concern of my practice. By definition, "healthy" means more than positive ear, nose, and throat examinations-- it also implies emotional, physical, moral, and cognitive fitness. It includes giving a baby the best environment to grow, flourish and reach his or her full potential at each stage of development."
From the Author
This is an exciting period of growth and development for children, and a time when parental training and encouragement are major players in the child's developing world. These preschool and early school years awaken within a child a sense of fearful adventure in an ever-expanding world outside the confines of mom and dad.

As a case study: our three year old girl was getting out of hand with back talk, tantrums, and disobedient. She would be sweet and angelic one moment and in a total meltdown the next when something happened to cross her will. We began requiring more respect from her and enforcing quick, responsiveness with non-reactionary regularity and it has changed her world. She is not only more polite and respectful, she's also more even-tempered, cheerful, and understanding when things don't go her way. She speaks confidently but appropriately with adults and peers and she hardly ever has meltdowns anymore. We couldn't be more pleased or grateful for this book. It really gave us the courage to assume our role as parents not pushovers.
My son is 18 now and headed to Stanford. "On Becoming Childwise" helped me get my priorities straight as a parent. If you have a kid who loves to test limits this book is for you!
